This is why Nintendo will never be in financial danger. They own a lot of crazy profitable IPs.

Remember when they're stock plummitted earlier this year? They did a literal last minute announcement of 3rd gen remakes and everyone lost their shit. E3 2013, Smash 4, everyone lost their shit. Nintendo still has over $10 billion banked and can survive on a $250 million loss for 40 years. Nintendo is here to stay, and they're the biggest fuck-you to the PC Master Race and their retarded investors because no matter what happens, Nintendo is here and has the power to do whatever they want.

They are literally a treasure chest that spawns its own gold for Nintendo

Maybe they can put some of that money toward a Pokemon Wii U RPG game

I wish... GF stated main Pokemon will stay on handhelds though so i wouldnt expect it anytime soon sadly

At least give me a pokemon snapU or an colleseum type game then

Was just about to say thay!!! Only good can come from it (if they do it right)

I think if the Super Smash Wii U + 3DS works well, maybe in the future they will try a Pokemon Wii U + 3DS game - same game only far better graphic and options on the Wii U version.

That much money and they just now made a 3D Pokemon game? O.o. Seriously they should be able to make a console Pokemon game EASILY. It would sell and they have the $$$ to do it.

They should make a new style of Pokemon game for the Wii U.

It can be an RPG but don't give it the handhelds combat system. I would prefer it to be more of a single player experience.
